Mestis is the second highest league of hockey in Finland. I've been following Mestis for some years as well as Sm-Liiga. In Mestis my favorite team is of course Vaasan Sport, which was very close to promote to SM-liiga two years ago but lost in overtime in the last and crucial game against Ässät. After that season the SM-Liiga was closed so the winner team of Mestis didn't even have a chance to promote, which in my opinion is stupid. This year there should be a chance for promotion but no one really knows whats going on.
Also an interesting season, many good teams and especially nice to see a young and hopeful Sport this season.
